Counselling for Eating Disorders in East Sussex

Eating disorders are common, yet often go unnoticed, undiagnosed or untreated.

Anorexia, binge eating and bulimia nervosa are types of eating disorders. They are characterised by an abnormal attitude towards food, difficulty controlling how much is eaten, and making unhealthy choices about food that ultimately damages the body.

Eating disorders are often blamed on the social pressure to be thin, as young people in particular feel they should look a certain way. However, the causes are usually more complex, and may reflect underlying mental or psychological issues.

Problems with food can begin when it's used to cope with feelings of boredom, anxiety, anger, loneliness, guilt or low self-esteem. Controlling what is eaten can become a way of controlling difficult emotions or coping with painful situations. There is unlikely to be a single cause.

Treatment of Eating Disorders in East Sussex
